I have to admit, I have been a fan / member of Brandi's site since 2005 just after her appearance on Howard Stern so I am bias toward her. That said I am commenting here on her new site rather than her as a model.
I read the review at The Best Porn and some of the comments and think people completely miss the point. The new site is a social network and has all of the features and functionality of a Myspace or Facebook.
As a member I can blog, upload my own photos, video, wallpapers, add friends, create video playlists, save my favorite photo sets to my profile or even save an individual image if I want. Hell, I can even go so far as saving an individual blog post to my favorites.
Video: In addition to what I feel is a kick ass video stream, her new site also allows me to preview each video and even download them in multiple formats. And I'm not sure if the player somply makes it difficult to find but you can view a video at full screen.. might not be HD at full screen but they aren't "small" videos?
Photos: I would like to see a zip option, and according to the member feedback group she is going to add this. But zip downloads aside the photo options are far more advanced than anything I have seen in a site. I can view an individual image in the standard viewer ( which does limit the view ) or I can view the full size. I can also play as two different types of slideshows, advance one at a time, leave comments on individual photos in a picture set and even save a set or individual picture to my personal favorites.
Instant Chat: I have used this new feature often and have had real time chats with Brandi as well as other members. I think thats really slick!
Inbox: I have a Facebook, Myspace and Twitter account. I use Gmail and Yahoo Mail and I'm also a member of another social network ( Suicide Girls ) Brandi's interal mail system is as feature rich as any email client. You can attach files, create a signature, create and manage labels etc etc. I don't know of another paysite that has anything close to this.. Not even Facebook. This inbox also serves as a notification system. So every time Brandi or any of my Friends have an update, I get notified in my personal inbox... I really like that.
News Feed: I read in the Best Porn Review that there was nowhere to see the most recent updates? On the home page there is a model and member news feed which is a real time feed of every activity in the site. And each profile has it's own news feed so you can see an individuals most recent activities.
Again, I may be bias toward Brandi but to say the site has limited options simply means a person hasn't taken the time to really explore them. Honestly, there are more features in the new site than any social network I have used... maybe that's the issue.... too many features?
After reading the current TBP review at 82, I decided to take a look at the tour. After looking at the tour, the site seemed quite promising. The model is hot and I actually would not mind seeing more of her....However, I then looked at the TBP facts sheet. 640 X 480 res with grainy picture and highest res of pics at 1024? Ew. Then I checked out WittyGuy's review and noticed even more, there are no zips and the site just recently started updated at 640 x 480 (about a year ago?)...Oh man. Just like WittyGuy commented about the site being Amateur, I can agree to some extent that I should expect less quality...but still, 640 X 480 and 1024 res for pics with no zip downloads for sets? I hate it when I really want to join a site but something so simple just as technical things stray me away. It's amazing that TBP would judge this site an 82 with this aspect but it is what it is, I'd have to go with WittyGuy's review as a better sum for score...and I think he was being quite kind in that score as well.
It's been two years since we've had a review or comment here and I notice that the site statistics date back to 2007 as well. From her short tour it looks like she's doing more HC shots and updating regularly but I wanted to confirm this. I'm also curious if Brandi has upped the quality of her work in terms of pic and vid sizes. I'm usually not one for solo models but she is a damn fine MILF.
I also find her marketing approach interesting. She has her site, a blog, runs a swingers site, is branching out into other sites (just did a shoot for Naughty America) among other things. She probably does the best job of marketing herself and her wares of any amateur (or pro for that matter) that I know of. It has to be a lot of work but then again she's probably making some coin and/or just digs the attention.
I just joined this site tonight and will have a review soon, but I was impressed at the number of options offered on length of memebership and pricing. I went for the 7 day membership which is just over a dollar a day and they offer biweekly and monthly options too! So far I'm very pleased, but haven't hit the full depths of the site yet. More to come!
